Drawn from the inspiration of light beams piercing through clouds, artist Hiroshi Taruta from Seto adopted the "hotarude" technique and started to carve lines instead of the typical round patterns. Observing that conventional carving often resulted in distortion, cracks, and a rigid appearance, Taruta addressed this challenge by incorporating curved shapes and lines to impart a soft, translucent feel. The carefully cut stripes on the gentle silhouette permit light to filter through, creating an effect as if the piece is gently illuminated, projecting a compelling presence when displayed.
